Hey CVC, The weekend weather looks great on Saturday, with a slight chance of rain on Sunday. If you do ride in the rain or wet conditions, watch your speed, especially on corners and descents. I will send an update email on Sunday morning around 6 AM.
On Saturday, we have three rides. The Red Ride is heading up over Westlake to the beach and back up Encinal Canyon, then down Rock Store. The Orange ride is doing a loop over Mulholland incuding 7-Minute, Rockstore and Encinal Canyon. And the Gold ride is heading for Calabasas over Mureau and back over Mulholland and 7-Minute HIll as well, but will drop back down Cornell.
On Sunday, we've got three rides, and hopefully a dry day. The Red Ride is headed to the beach over Potrero and will return back up Mulholland. The G.O. Ride is doing a nice loop around Simi Valley, over Santa Suzanna and Box Canyon before returning through Calabasas. And the social ride is going to do Wildwood and return through Hidden Valley.
We've also got midweek rides Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, including a Tuesday night mountain bike ride, a Wednesday afternoon spin with Sheri and destination rides Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
When riding with your groups, please be very verbal and watch for debris in the bike lanes. Always warn riders behind you of everything approaching! You are their eyes when you are on the front.
Our Purple and Newcomer rides are getting a fantastic response. Please help spread the word and bring friends! Our next ride and class is scheduled for two weeks on the 4th of March. Come join us and bring family and friends.
Let me know if I can help with anything bike or ride-related. I always have extra gear, nutrition, supplies and my toolbox, pump, etc. And let's ride!

SAFETY REMINDERS If there is a marked bike lane, cyclists may ride shoulder to shoulder. Single file otherwise. There is no three or four abreast at any time while moving.If you are wearing a CVC kit, you represent the club, so please be sure to follow the rules of the road. When riding with CVC, you agree to: * Wear a helmet and ensure my bike is in good working order. * Ride to the right, pass on the left. * Ride in the bike lane (where available) and signal when moving into another lane. * Ride no more than two abreast in the bike lane, single file on narrow roads, and avoid "Swarming" (bunching up and multiplying the chance of accidents) * Call out and point if I see a traffic hazard * Respect ALL traffic laws and the rights of all autos, bicycles, and pedestrians* Ride predictably and remind other to be safe * Be a bicycling ambassador
PARKING Please remember when parking at The Landing for any weekend morning rides to park and congregate towards the far end of the lot away from the street and use the middle row. Do not park next to the homes.
ADDITIONAL NOTES The Purple ride is considered a no drop. Having said that, please note that if you are falling behind or slower than the average pace, you may be dropped. All rides not asterisked are considered a "drop ride" so please understand the route before you start (and how to get back). If you get to a regrouping spot and no one is there, consider yourself dropped. As always, we will try to stick together and have a fun, safe ride. We will regroup regularly to allow everyone a chance to ride together.
If for any reason you leave a group ride, please pass along the information to the ride leader.
Inclement weather policy: In the interest of safety, whenever it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, it is our club policy to cancel a club ride. Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
